Description

Using classical violin music as her principal laboratory, the author examines how a performance incorporates distinctive features not only of her work but of the performer as well - and how the listener goes about interpreting not only the composer's work and the performer's rendering of the work, but the performer's and listener's identities as well. A richly interdisciplinary approach to a very common, yet persistently mysterious, part of our lives.show more
